Doncaster police were on patrol in Warrandyte early this morning when they came across a stationary Nissan Pulsar blocking a lane on Yarra Road about 3am.
Police spoke to the alleged driver of the vehicle which was missing its front left tyre.
The 19-year-old driver stated the tyre had got a puncture and he continued to drive until he couldn’t go any further as he, nor his passenger, didn’t know how to change a tyre.
Officers breath tested the Eltham man who returned a reading of 0.162.
His licence was licence immediately suspended for 12 months and he is expected to be charged on summons with drink driving offences.
The driver and his passenger, a 22-year-old Ringwood man, both stated it was not their fault that he did not know to change a tyre and blamed society for not teaching them.
Both men were issued fines for breaching Covid19 restrictions at a cost of $1652 each.
